'sMothered' Season 4 on TLC: A glance at the reality show's five most cringeworthy moments
‘sMothered’ focuses on mother-daughter bonds that sometimes border on crazy
TLC is known for its quirky reality programs like ‘90 Day Fiance,’ ‘The Family Chantel,’ ‘Seeking Sister Wife,’ ‘Stuck’ and so on. Undoubtedly, ever since its inaugural season in 2019, ‘sMothered‘ has had a place in the hearts of audiences and fans with its unique storyline. The show delves deep into mother-daughter relationships that are a bit closer than normal.
There’s nothing wrong with mothers being close with their daughters, but this series takes the not-so-novel idea to another level altogether. Before ‘sMothered’ Season 4 airs in August 2022, let's take a closer look at the five cringeworthy moments in the show so far.
1. Sunhe and Angelica’s shared bath water moment
Out of all the mother-daughter duos in the last three seasons, one of the most over-the-top pairs is 50-year-old Sunhe and her 30-year-old daughter Angelica. Their dynamic really rattled fans but what was really weird was their ‘bathing’ ritual seen in the second season of ‘sMothered.’ Sunhe agreed that there is nothing wrong with it, claiming that sharing bathwater is an act of trust between them.
2. Marcia and Alena’s awkward ‘good morning’ routine
Viewers saw how 68-year-old Marcia and her 21-year-old daughter Alena are really best friends to each other in ‘sMothered’ season 2 on TLC. Marcia had an unusual morning routine with her daughter. She woke Alena by playfully licking her face like a puppy. Alena, though, loves the odd show of affection. She said, “It kinda makes me feel closer to her because we’re doing something funny and out of the ordinary.” Marcia explained that it started during Alena's childhood. Marcia could not get her a dog, so she became a puppy for her daughter.
3. Mary and Brittani’s ‘Bathing’ routine
Mary and Brittani took Sunhe and Angelica's routine to a whole other level in season two of ‘sMothered’ on TLC. Fans witnessed how this mother-daughter duo have been showering together since Brittani was only 5. Brittani shared, “When my mom does simple things like washing my hair or washing my body it makes me feel comforted.”
The 19-year-old added that she shares a spiritual connection with her mother, and revealed that their closeness is similar to being bullied as a child. She also teased that their bond isn't a one-sided need, joking that if she ever moved away, her mother would “probably die from separation anxiety.”
4. Kathy and Cristina’s matching implants
In Season One of ‘sMothered’, viewers saw Kathy and her daughter Cristina doing all things together - be it crashing Cristina's sister's dates, discussing their sex lives, or planning over-the-top parties like their neighborhood-wide Easter egg hunt with 1200 eggs.
Cristina thinks there’s still a way they could be closer. She was seen constantly pressuring her mother Kathy to get a boob job, but not just any normal boob job. She apparently wanted their breast sizes to match so that they could also wear each other's clothes. She even tried a lot to bring her husband, Carlo, into this obnoxious conversation and bluntly ended up asking him to give his opinion on her mother's breasts. Well, if that isn't cringy, we don't know what is.
5. Amy and Carina’s ‘panty sharing’ ritual
In season 3 of ‘sMothered,’ viewers saw a new mother and daughter duo in the form of 44-year-old Amy and her 23-year-old daughter Carina. They were seen sharing all their clothes - including their underwear. According to a New York Post interview dated May 2021, Amy said, “We share all our clothes, our closet, everything. So the panties, we’re constantly getting mixed up because they’re in a communal drawer.” Ok, that's as cringy as it gets.
‘sMothered’ season 4 premieres globally on August 9, 2022 on TLC at 8 PM ET.
